About Rock School
Dave Simon’s Rock School creates a fun and energetic environment for kids ages 4-18 to discover the joys of music through the experience of learning how to play an instrument and performing with a rock band. The school’s curriculum involves private lessons, a performing rock band program, and a state-of-the-art recording studio. Students build their skill set in private lessons as they work towards placement in one of the school’s four rock band programs. Band placement is determined by a student’s performance on their quarterly musical skill assessment.
Private lessons are offered for guitar, piano, drums, bass guitar and voice.
